Welcome.

My name is Margot Austin and I am the editor-in-chief of The Design Edit, a collection of the best design stories I encounter in my life as a stylist and design communications specialist. Read on to meet top talents, get inspired by beautiful spaces, find out about innovative products and  maybe even try one of my dead-easy DIY projects. I look forward to connecting with you, a fellow design hound.

Buehler? Buehler? Bea Buehler

Buehler? Buehler? Bea Buehler

Bea Bühler leather goods designer

Today I made a very interesting discovery via Instagram and her name is Bea Bühler, but her brand is Bea Buehler. Bea is a German-born designer who has been based in Paris for that last 16 years. Her specialty is handbags — the coolest architectural minimalist handbags I have ever seen. They are all handmade in France and they are exquisite. Her products are released by themed capsule collection and the latest collection, called Moon, is described as "A journey of the circle in 11 pieces." Join me to take a look. 

Her Inspiration

The Bags

Never in a million years did I imagine that I could covet a fanny pack. Turns out you just need to make it minimal and round and call it a belt bag and I'm in.

And here is one more sweet piece from the previous collection, called Balloon:
